A JOURNEY TO AVEBURY BY STANLEY SCHTINTER

"We want to see ourselves translated into stone and plants, we want to take walks in ourselves." (Friedrich Nietzsche)

In 1971, Derek Jarman took an 8mm camera to the ancient landscape of Avebury, filming henges and standing stones as he walked. In 2021, fifty years after Jarman's trip and during a global pandemic, Schtinter attempted to replicate the journey, re-shooting the film as closely as possible with an iPhone. At once a critique of capitalism's culture of reproduction; an indictment of its canonisations; and an attempt to subvert the insistence of a dystopic 'present' for an experience of place without the constraints of time.

"Stanley Schtinter runs with wolves." (Sukhdev Sandhu)
